What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

So, you’re getting a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to run at its peak performance, it’s crucial to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc—perform your heat pump installation. You can also provide support by doing a little preparation before we arrive to install your new heat pump.

First, be sure the region around your outdoor compressor/condenser is cleared so the technicians can easily get where they need to be to replace it. If you didn’t already have a heat pump, clear an area where your home’s new heat pump will be installed outside. It’s also important to check that any plants and brushes are trimmed away from the outdoor unit for proper operation and to allow for maintenance.

You can also perform some simple home maintenance projects to help ensure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Ensure that your attic is well-insulated. You should also look for air leaks around your doors and windows. If you find any, they can frequently be repaired with weather stripping or caulking.

You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous heat pump. Plus, now is a great time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new heat pump. A smart thermostat can help ensure peak comfort and keep your house at your chosen temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like a new thermostat installed during your heat pump installation, you may also want to make sure you have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.

If you have additional questions about what you will anticipate during your new heat pump installation, or if you are curious how long your installation will last, give Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc a call at 561-612-0242.
